I saw a similar quilt to this while at the quilt show in Hampton last spring and knew I wanted to give it a try. The one there had strips of fabric for the stripes but I love a scrappy quilt so I made mine using small blocks in a variety of red and white fabrics. Theirs had Friendship stars but I love using a variety of Sawtooth Stars so I mixed mine up. I made it as a Quilt as You Go so the entire quilt was made on my Babylock Unity. I’m happy with how it turned out. I call it “Yankee Doodle”.

Not that kind of Strip Poker!!! LOL! Remember a few weeks ago we had our Stitch & Bitch V Retreat? One of the games we played with the group was “Strip Poker” where we played a game using Jelly Roll Strips. I WON 100 jelly roll strips in all colors and prints. So part of the game was to “makes something” and share it. So here it is. I used them along with these Moda pre-printed Farm Animal blocks to make this Quilt as You Go quilt. I love how it turned out. If you look closely you can see that I sewed the strips together and then cut them to use as half square triangles. I love star quilts!

I spent a delightful weekend with a group of talented quilters at the “Piecemakers” Retreat in Roxbury, Pennsylvania. I learned so much from them and they were all so generous with their knowledge. While there I worked on a baking themed quilt for Sister, who is a terrific cake and bread maker. She came up from Georgia to stay with Lincoln so I could go to the retreat when my regular sitter had an emergency out of state. As her birthday is in a few weeks and I had planned to make this quilt for her I decided to move it up so that I could give it to her while she was here. She loved it….and so did Paisley, her little Yorkie. I think Sister will have to share it with her. Happy Early Birthday!!!

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.

Back in September we started our Block of the Month classes. The two groups have been learning how to make different block designs each month. While the classes will be making number 9 and 10 this month I just finished the last two blocks so I can show them the way it will all look together at the next class. It is such a fun project and a great way to learn with others who enjoy the same type of sewing.

We are LOVING these Modern Express Quilts. I picked up the fabric for this one while at the quilt show a few weeks ago. The mixing of colors and patterns are so much fun….although Lincoln seems a little tired with it. LOL

I recently saw an amazing postage stamp quilt that was king size and made with 1 inch squares…over 7000 of them!!! So, of course, it made me want to try it. The table runner in the photo (The one with the border and the bowl) was made with 1 inch squares. The other one was made using jelly rolls so the finished squares are 2 inches. These were fun but I don’t think I can stand 7000 squares of fun. LOL! You can make one of these beautiful patchwork table runners or toppers (square) on Sunday, April 3rd at 2 pm at The Studio. And the best part is all supplies are included so you don’t have to buy 50 different fabrics to get this look. Join us to learn an easy trick to putting a bunch of little squares together.

I’ve been gathering coffee themed fabric for some time now and while at the Quilt Show last week, I found some cool panels and blocks with coffee sayings. I snatched them right up! Today I started working on combining them with the fabric I had with mugs and coffee beans. I like how it is coming together. I got the center panel done with a border. Now I have to decide how I will add the blocks. Hmmmmm?!?!
